What an idiot! "Obama's Economy has created 110,000 jobs for millenials since 2007??? Sunshine, wake up! Mr. Obama took the Oath of Office for his first term January 20, 2009! So yes, if you subtract the millions of jobs lost from Jan 2007 - Dec 2008, during the Bush Administration as Obama's fault, then you've got a point...Delusional and partisan, but a point.
Ireland had the third biggest deficit in the EU last year at 8.2%, new figures from Europe show today. Spain's deficit stood at 10.6%, while the Greek deficit was 9% last year. A total of 17 member states had deficits higher than 3% of GDP, today's figures show. Fifteen member states recorded in improvement in their deficits last year compared to 2011, while 12 reported a growing deficit and one remained stable. The lowest deficits were seen in Estonia and Sweden (-0.2%), Luxembourg (-0.6%) and Bulgaria (-0.8%). Germany achieved a government surplus of 1% last year. The Eurostat figures also showed Ireland had the fourth largest debt to GDP ratio last year at 117.4%. The figure measures a country's borrowings in proportion to the size of its economy. Imagine that, Germany the land of Unionized workers and the highest per capita wages in the world had a SURPLUS! How can that be given the daily "support the upper class" rhetoric of the GOP??? Even crazier, while we continue to have yearly trade deficits, Germany continues to have yearly trade surpluses! Apparently Unionization, high wages and higher taxation do not have the catastrophic affect that the Corporate right spoon feeds you all. Now go celebrate that America, once the land of GM and GE as our largest Employers has been replaced by Walmart as the largest US employer....Sad.
Interesting...From NewsMax... Eaton, a 101-year-old Cleveland-based maker of components and electrical equipment, announced in May that it planned to acquire Dublin, Ireland-based Cooper Industries, another electrical-equipment maker. Eaton will keep its factories, offices and other operations in the United States...SO, this $8M + a year CEO is indicating that to avoid paying US taxes, he'll keep all operations in the U.S. just move their Corporate P.O. Box to Ireland to save money. MEANWHILE, Ireland has the 3rd largest Deficit in the EU thanks to their reduction in tax revenue! Oh and isn't it ironic the "high tax, high Unionization highest per capita wages in the world" Germany, the ONLY EU Country to post a Budget Surplus! Man, you people are so gullible! Look at the US economy today, 3 years of RECORD US corporate profits! DOW Jones at a Record level many thought couldn't even be reached (soon to pass 17,000!) more Billionaires and Millionaires than at any time in our history AND more wealth at the Top 1% than anytime in history! So corporations are booming, the wealthy are booming, yet Middle Class is struggling??? What happened to the laws of the Conservative Trickle Down theory in place??? Oh yeah, as David Stockman, Reagan's Budget Director NOW says "the trickle down policies first implemented under Mr. Reagan have proven to be a failure to the US economy and a disaster for the Middle Class."
Interesting that Nixon, Reagan and GW administrations are head and shoulders above the post WWII Presidential Administrations for Indictments, Convictions or Resignations to avoid prosecution!!! So you saying those are the Marxist Presidents? Check for yourself, if you care about facts. BTW, US Corporations set Records for Profits and Cash on hand for the last 3 years. The Wall Street indices, the standard for Capitalism are ALL at record high levels! The Dow is nearing 17,000 when it was at 8,000 the day before Obama took the oath of office! We have record numbers of Billionaires and Millionaires and the Top 1% has more wealth and higher income than at any time in our history!! Is that what you are calling Marxism? this is the seriously delusional part about you partisans on the right, while those of us who make comfortable 6 figures have seen NO impact from the Global economic collapse and housing market collapse, those who feel it the most, continue to back politicians that back policies that enrich the top, while creating a low wage, low price Walmart economy for the lower 80%.
First, the IRS was under the direction of Douglas Shulman, a George W appointee. Lois Lerner, began her career in the Government in 1981 under Reagan and in 2001 moved to the IRS under George W. So that is the first reason why those of us with brains attack the partisan Issa. Number 2, learn critical thinking. Issa instructed the Treasury IG with the following "Go check to see if Conservative groups are being subjected to scrutiny by the IRS." This is what we call SELECTIVE direction. Issa DID NOT,k as he has admitted, direct the IG with INCLUSIVE direction "Go check to see what groups are being subjected to scrutiny by the IRS." Do you understand the difference? SO, after the initial SELECTIVE report, other Congressional members asked for an INCLUSIVE check. LO AND BEHOLD, Liberal Groups were being scrutinized! Credit Counseling groups were being scrutinized! Numerous different groups that COULD be political in nature were scrutinized with the BOLO lists. Terms like "Occupy" and "Progressive" as well as "Medical Marijuana" and "Healthcare reform" were included on BOLO lists. You'd have to be pretty brainless to think these terms are Conservative! BTW, if you truly are about reality, do a check on Bush directing the IRS to see if Tax exempt status could be revoked from All Saints Episcopal Church, Greenpeace and other organizations that opposed the Iraq war...
OK, so let me get this straight. So the contention is that all of the communication in 2011 around the crashed hard drive, the fact that the computer was sent to multiple sources for recovery ALL was done 2 years prior to this investigation occurring because these people were Telepathic and could tell that in two years there would be an investigation??? Riiiight.
Yeah, we look for intelligence, not proclivity to double as a hooker...
Well Grimes was born and raised in Kentucky, attended college in TN, Nunn was born in Georgia and attended college in Virginia so I assume what you are saying is these women are ignorant Southern folk...Nice.
I agree that with this "issue" being presented in the Inspector General's report to the GOP controlled House, Senate and Bush White House in 2005, nothing changed! Actually they sat on it for three years and then included it amongst the thousands of transition items given to the transition team. Meanwhile just a year later, the whole Walter Reed VA scandal broke and eventually 3 people in the VA chain of command resigned. I agree with Robert Gates, who served in 6 Presidential Administrations, Shinseki should at least get a shot at resolving the issue versus walking away. Calling for his resignation is just political pandering to low intelligence and an inability by so many to investigate beyond 2 second sound bites.
How about doing some real research on the Industry and the government, IN COLLABORATION, trying to eliminate Fraud and Identity theft and the ability of banks to profit on these issues, with no concern for the Consumer!! And nothing is likely to change in the way Justice pursues fraud in the payment system. Why? Because there are some pretty egregious cases of fraud out there in the payment system, according to consumer groups. Take Four Oaks Bank of North Carolina, impacted by the new policy, where prosecutors say bankers waved off signs of fraud while pulling down more than $850,000 in payment-processing fees and customer refund requests. Executives at Four Oaks dismissed evidence that online lenders routing payments through the bank were making loans without being licensed in the states where the borrowers lived, according to the complaint. The bank, which settled the case in January for $1.2 million, allegedly let lenders process $2.4 billion in illegal transactions.
